I just might be, buddy. But at least they'll have good tunes there.
Because my tastes were different, it was always rare that I'd have people to go to live shows with me. Had I strictly wanted to see live pop acts, I'd be set. But for the most part, I was shit outta luck. I missed out.
As I got older and my tastes became a bit more eclectic (read: batshit crazy), I've been able to find some concert partners here and there. Whenever I have one who is my regular long-term concert date, it's awesome to have a person who craves live shows like I do. Before you even ask the question "Hey, wanna go see [insert random act here]?", you know for damn sure that the answer is yes. In those cases, I was pretty lucky.
That kinda thing, for me, is priceless.
So since I don't have an automatic +1 for any and all shows right now, this is a public message to my friends who are music freaks: Who wants to go to live shows with me?
Who can I bug every time there is a local act, a stadium show, or a friend's band that I need to see?
If you think dating is hard, try finding the right music partner.
It's a pretty intangible connection.
For those looking for platonic live show partners, be warned; I'm often liable to do the Elaine dance & yell made-up words.
